I know that there was a plugin that looked like that, it
might still work, I think it was called workspace switcher.

You can also use the window list applet or middle-click on
the dekstop (or use your scrollwheel on it) to switch 
workspaces -- justa remark (I love the scrollwheel thing).

As for exact looks of the switcher -- you can surely tweak
it with the gtk theme. I've heard that it's not perfect yet,
as not all the widgets are named, but it's worth a try.

There is a tutorial on gtk theming on art.gnome.org.
